Border Patrol to speak on current and future fences

Protestors have raised their voices since the recent presidential election — particularly about the proposed extended border fence or wall.

Navajo Canyon Republican Women Federated (NCRWF) is interested to hear how well the current fence is doing in stemming drugs, human trafficking and “alien” crossings.

On March 14 at The Brigantine restaurant in La Mesa, Sgt. Sergio Rojas of the U.S. Border Patrol and Customs agency will enlighten us about the results of the current fence — erected in the San Diego area during the 1990s — and discuss the ramifications of a future completed fence.

Check-in time for the 11 a.m. meeting is 10:30 a.m. A full-course luncheon will be served at noon, followed at 12:30 pm by our speaker.

Security at the border will be discussed at the next Navajo Canyon Republican Women Federated meeting. (Wiki Commons)

Cost of the luncheon meeting is $25 and reservations are required. Please RSVP to (use RSVP in the subject line) or call 619-990-2701.

April 11 will be the NCRWF annual evening meeting. The evening will include dinner, speaker and the famous Navajo Road Show — a silent auction on members’ own antiques and collectibles.

Dozens of other items will also be up for auction or sale. The site of the event will be the Elks Club in El Cajon. More details to follow, but mark your calendar!
